^ I see, well, I have Windows 7 Starter so I was just thinking maybe I should get Ultimate, but I wasn't sure, thanks.

Looking for the title of a new television series starting on the BBC, it isn't a directed drama series or something like that so I have been having a hard time to find the title. It's much like trading spouses, secret millionaire but in this case a rich posh family switches home with kids and all with a family from a poorer region. I saw a commercial of it a few weeks back but can't look up much on the bbc television website because my country is being blocked from most of the content.

Lately I've been using a ginseng root supplement in the form of capsules. What got me interested was its etimology, Asian origin and medical effects, which are still somewhat obscure, all of which I had to study for my pharmacognosy exam. Being a japanese culture fan and a student with a relatively stressful lifestyle I decided to give it a go.

Has anyone here tried it and experienced any positive effects? After some time using it I do feel like it's helping me focus and improving my physical abilities a little (I also work out) but most notably my sleep has improved - while according to Wikipedia one is only likely to experience sleep deprivation as a side effect! On the back of the box of the supplement I bought the opposite is written.

Hence my curiosity. Could have just googled it but I wanted to get some answers first hand.
I was also wondering if anyone knows if it is as popular in Japan as in China?

Also,

Also, something you can't really make out from that page, in Starter you can't change the wallpaper and there's no Aero (transparent windows and other effects).
Really? You can't even change the freaking wallpaper? Wow.

I was more disgusted by the initial idea they had that you couldn't open more then 3 programs at once.

How can something so stupid even get suggested.

Yhep, but best of all some microsoft-made software was supposed to be exempted from that (thankfully) cut "feature" like Internet Explorer for example.

BTW Dextro you still didn't get that thing in your signature to work, even in newer versions of IE?

It works in IE except for some javascript also no IE6 support but IE7 and up should work. I've been working on a slight redesign to cut down load times, improve js performance and fix some bugs but time hasn't assisted me.

Is it true that Maaya Sakamoto had just married Suzumura Kenichi recently?

What precisely does OP and ED stand for?

Obviously OP is used for OPening (I presume) but ED under this logic is EnDing, which seems wrong.

So do they stand for something different?

I don't think there's actual logic in it, but perhaps it's based on how you can break the syllables:

o-pe-ning and en-ding -> OP and ED, counting only the first two syllables.

How exactly does the Nervous System work?

There are nerve endings EVERYWHERRREEEE in your body.

Think of those nerve endings being connected ALLL to your brain, in some fashion, like a giant electrical circuit. When those nerve endings get electrically stimulated (by you touching things, or light entering your eyeballs, or basically any kind of stimuli) they send that electrical signal up to your brain, signalling what you just did! (e.g. pain, seeing, touching things) =D

You could go with Khu's answer which is more or less the gist of it... or I could explain nerve conduction via axon myelination signal transduction of electrical impulses, an explanation that will give us both headaches. So go with Khu's answer.

Unless Detective-san is doing a project, I didn't think going into that kind of depth was necessary :P

Hmm, well yes, he summed it up much better than I could, but I more-or-less got the gist in 6th Grade.

Though I don't remember much.

Yeah, I am doing a project, I'm not good with terms and such, so if you could give the head ache inducing one, I am prepared.

The most concise but simplified explanation would be... well...

The nervous system transmits nerve impulses from the brain towards muscles/organs/other body parts (efferent pathways) and towards the brain from body parts (afferent pathways) through a combination of electrical impulses conducted along neurons and chemical signals between each neuron. Electrical signals are transmitted to or from the brain when the corresponding stimulus generates an action potential along the surface of the neurons, causing electrical energy to move along the body of the neuron towards the axon. When it reaches the end of the neuron, the electrical impulse causes the release of neurotransmitters that bridge the gap between individual neurons. These neurotransmitters stimulate the next neuron to generate another action potential and propagate the next electrical signal along the path until it reaches it's destination and causes the desired effect.

The remaining mystery is how a wad of neurons maps memories and stores them as well as how the interpretation of sensor data and memory data works. We have a very detailed understanding of *where* things happen... just not what the programming language is or how to program it. The brain is a very messy plumber's nightmare of computation that somehow gives rise to an emergent complexity we call "mind".
